Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2007 Chrysler Pacifica with 38,829 miles need to have both outer tie rod ends replaced. My wife and I are the first owners. I feel that the miles on vehicle are to low for such damage and very close to the basic coverage or the intent of coverage. I will be getting it repaired at my local Chrysler dealership.

When turning to the right or the left I can hear a rubbing type noise. I took it into the two different dealers on two separate occasions complaining of the noise, but the dealers could not duplicate the problem. When I turn I hear a rubbing noise and now when I reverse there is a loud grinding/rubbing noise similar to the noise that I get when turning. The noise generally occurs first thing in the morning after I have started my car and reverse it. If my car has been sitting for a while it will do the noise then too! I'm unsure what is causing the noise and since the dealers can't duplicate it they have not done anything either. I'm quite concerned as to what can be causing these noises and I do believe that they are linked! I noticed another Pacifica owner had the same problem as I did so now I know it's not just my car.

There is a noise coming from suspension or steering. It occurs when backing out and turning. Two loud clunks. One when backing up and turning, one when straightening up the wheels. Also, when turning while driving, many times there is a noise coming from steering - feels like a short grind resonating into the steering wheel. At first I though it was a tire hitting on something on the car. I've been complaining about this since the car was new ( 2007 Chrysler Pacifica). Not until last year, did dealer take this seriously and took a look at it. Car was in for a total of three or four times. Once for as long as three weeks. I am being told the cross member was replaced. Unfortunately, the car is still making the same noises and I am afraid it is a safety issue. Dealer says there is nothing wrong with the car. I think it is a big safety issue. Sure feels like something isn't right.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica touring. While driving 35 mph and other speeds, the steering wheel locked. The contact pulled over, turned the vehicle off and restarted it; the power steering reset itself. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer twice where the motor mounts were replaced. The failure continued. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 56,000.

Steering wheel shakes violently everytime when '07 Chrysler Pacifica is slowing down. Brought in for service and was told the car needed a new front motor mount. Not covered under any warranty. Search of the internet shows multiple problems of chrsyler Pacifica motor mount replacement, and needing to replace multiple times. Dealership only guarantees new motor mount for 12 months, or 12,000 miles.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,150 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica. The contact stated that the vehicle loses power while driving between 15 to 60 mph. The failure has occurred seven times since the vehicle was purchased. Right after the failure, the low oil pressure indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The driver experienced limited ability to steer and stop the vehicle during the failure. The vehicle is able to be immediately restarted after the failure. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for repair on four occasions. On the first occasion, the dealer stated that they could not duplicate the failure; however, they updated the software. On the second occasion, the dealer duplicated the failure and replaced the throttle body. On the third occasion, the emissions indicator illuminated and an erroneous evaporation code appeared. The computer was reset at that time. On the fourth visit to the dealer, three loose electrical grounds were found and tightened; however, the failure continued. The previous owner also experienced the failures, but the manufacturer was unable to determine the cause. The failure mileage was 21,150 and current mileage was 23,250.

Pacifica

  • 13,000 miles
September 8, 2008, my wife was driving our 2007 Pacifica. Power steering failed, she attempted to park the car in a parking space in front of a retail store. Smoke appeared from hood area, fluid leaked out from under front end, flames erupted. Fire department was there in several minutes to extinguish the blaze, but not before damage was done to the building and another vehicle parked next to the Pacifica. Front end of car completely burned. Chrysler ordered an inspection conducted by an independent adjuster. Claims results are inconclusive and has ordered another inspection. Obviously this is not the first report of fire caused by power steering fluid leak. We have waited patiently for over five weeks. Chrysler suggest we settle with our insurance company. I am not willing to do that when it is obviously a defect and the car is in warranty. The car only had approximately 13,000 miles.

I purchased a '07 Chrysler Pacifica in February. I've had nothing but problems with the car. I had to have the motor mount replaced. I had problems with it shuttering and acting as though it doesn't shift between 30-35 mph. I've had the torque converter replaced on it as well. After that I've had to have the tie rods replaced, and the struts. Since I've noticed that almost everyone is having the torque converter and motor mount problems as well as other Chrysler vehicles this should be addressed. Since I've had the torque converter removed while it was still in shop I get my car back and when you let go of the steering wheel it veers completely to the left. Now the dealership is trying to clean their hands and saying it's a defect with the car; they have to contact Chrysler. Hello-it didn't do this before I took it in and now it is since they've 'fixed' it. It's actually unbelievable since so many car manufacturers are failing you'd think they'd recall this problem, fix it and keep what reputation they have left.
